PAPER ARTS: Eye Catching Surface Designs on Paper

I will be teaching my first OLLI class this Fall 2016 and hope you will want to join me.

We will be creating original designs on paper to be used for Book Arts, Collage, Cards and Assemblages. In creating these designs we will use a variety of mediums and tools and be guided through the creative experience.
